Aviation Museums within the USA (grouped by state)

These listings are grouped by states and in alphabetical order—a two letter post office abbreviation is used for the state in the address. There are quite a few military bases that have excellent aviation displays and, since they require either a military ID or an escort, so I have not included these.

Last updated April 2017: the USA is a large country with much in the way of aviation history—200+ museums with three newly opened museums this year—yet the states of  West Virginia and Mississippi each lack even a single dedicated aviation museum, though each has a museum in part dedicated to aviation.

Mr. Patrick Carry maintains the museum list at Warbird Alley and shared the many updates he has diligently found verifying links several times per year.

Museums that are on ships or where ships are present are listed in this color (5 aircraft carriers and 2 battleships).

    Thanks for this great list !
    My husband and I plan to use your list in our plans for travel from Massachusetts to Oshkosh, WI in July where it’s fun to not only see the museum, but the great annual event, AirVenture (www.AirVenture.org), where thousands of aircraft fly in. Check out the Warbirds section (especially the tribute to WWII with B-29, Lancaster, and more), antique planes, etc.
    So we’ll use you list to stop at additional museums on the way to & from Oshkosh.
    .
    I do see one typo in your list — Massachusetts is misspelled for the Air and Space Museum which we’re also looking forward to visiting once it’s finished. (and we’ve joined to support it’s creation).
    .
    btw — The National Museum of the US Air Force has a ‘Behind the Scenes Tour’ — http://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/visit/tours.asp (< schedule at this link) — My husband and I have been to this wonderful museum years ago, but didn't know about this tour until this year – we've already booked the limited attendance Behind the Scenes Tour.

      13 April 2015 10:30

      So glad this list was a help for you 🙂 So many museums and so little time!

      Thanks for pointing out the typo and I agree that I should amend the National USAF Museum listing so indicate the behind the scenes tours. I went on the one for the restoration hangar and enjoyed the insights there immensely. Just down the way, a few miles, from the museum is the Haynes Prairie site where the Wright Brothers did much of their test flying. It is beautiful as well as bucolic there. Type the name into the search window to get the information.

        12 March 2017 18:55

        This is funny 😉

        I made those changes but you didn’t see them. I think you are looking at the blog through the Seattle PI web site perhaps? Instead of the home web site on WordPress?

        The way it works for me is that when I edit (for which I use the WordPress site) it takes 12 hours or so to roll through to the Seattle PI site.

        That’s my theory, it may be something else but I checked and the edits have been made on both of my USA lists.

        No harm, no foul 🙂

      Changed it. I see they dropped the reference to the Spruce Goose in the URL but they still have it. What a wonderful aircraft to see and you can go into the cockpit which is really a cabin a la the Dornier Do X. Roomy enough to house a single row radial aircraft engine in an out of the way corner!

      Great to see an additional two 🙂

      The World Aerospace Museum is a grand title for the small business it appears to be of importing Soviet aircraft–interesting to see the operations I’d think. Odd they give no address–only that they are located in Adams County. I placed it in the listings though.

    Joe, in Florida I can not find anything for the Historical Flight Foundation. The mentioned DC-7 has been parked at the Carolines Aviation Museum for the past 3 years with no immediate plans to fly it.

    • travelforaircraft permalink*
      6 May 2017 07:06

      Yes, I see the url goes to a complete other venture. The DC-7 blew a jug on take off leaving the Carolinas Aviation Museum so it remains there. The guys on the DC-7 were pretty fired up and I thought they’d have fixed that by now. The main driving force is the guy who runs a small DC-3 based airline running freight between Opa-locka FL and the Caribbean. It’s the DC-3 you see taking off in the Burn Notice intro. I edited the listing and removed the url.
